Yamaha AVENTAGE MX-A5000 AV Power Amplifier
Yamaha is proud to introduce two flagship separate components that stand at the pinnacle of the AVENTAGE Series of ultra-high performance components. They are the fullest expression of the AVENTAGE concept which combines fine craftsmanship, superb sound quality, unequalled sound realism, innovative technologies and enhanced controllability. Drawing on the spirit of uncompromising design and technological integrity manifested by our Z11 flagship receiver, the CX-A5000 and MX-A5000 take the AVENTAGE Series to new levels of audio performance, as well as greater than ever flexibility for use in network environments. By delivering not only great sound quality, but also the capability to achieve the best possible performance from any source, they take the home theater experience to a new standard of excellence and enjoyment.
Overwhelming Power and High Density Presence Achieved by 11.2 Channel Separate AV Amps
Making full use of Cinema DSP HD3, the pinnacle of three-dimensional sound field reproduction, the CX-A5000 AV pre-amplifier realizes detailed, accurate sound imaging. The MX-A5000 discrete structured 11 channel power amplifier delivers powerful driving force that provides superb quality and performance for all channels. Combining these two achieves overwhelming silence and sound filled with dynamic feeling - the goal to which Yamaha constantly aspires. With all types of sound sources, you will enjoy a deep resonance that immerses you in music with the full scale presence of 11.2 channels.
Specially Designed High Rigidity Chassis Eliminates the Effects of Vibration for Greater Sound Purity
As part of the no-compromise design policy for these two amplifiers, Yamaha created an advanced chassis with strong rigidity. Chassis stiffness is enhanced by an H-shaped cross frame that boosts mechanical strength by adopting aluminum side panels that increase the stiffness of the housing and by a three-ply structure with independent top cover and side panels. Any external vibration from the rack or other sources is damped by heavy insulators. The A.R.T. (Anti-Resonance Technology) Wedge in the center of the bottom cover acts as an additional vibration countermeasure and firmly supports the internal circuits and delicate parts. In addition, both models have a double bottom with the MX-A5000’s consisting of vibration control plates made of 1/8 inch (1.6 mm) black steel, the same type of construction used on the previous flagship model Z11. In order to support the heavy heat sinks and other parts, it has a left-right independent construction strengthened by a rigid-frame structure. The bottom frame reduces the transmission of vibration produced by the large power supply transformer and heat sinks. It also incorporates a heavy insulator that blocks external vibration.
Highest Quality Parts Achieve High Power to 11 Channels and Unrestricted Speaker Drive
The MX-A5000 uses a current feedback power amp with a three stage Darlington circuit that has superior phase properties and is resistant to speaker impedance fluctuation. To fully realize its inherent power, it uses high quality parts with superior sound quality that were strictly selected based on listening tests. The power supply transformer is a specially developed high output, high efficiency, largesize toroidal transformer. With two specially developed high capacity (27,000μF) block capacitors, it minimizes energy loss and features power supply capacity with generous headroom. This ensures sound capable of superior musical expression. The speaker output terminals are high quality gold-plated types and are compatible with Y plugs for optimum speaker connectivity.
Noise Resistant, Highly Reliable Balanced Connection
Electrical noise may be generated due to connection with other AV components and even to the connection between them, as well as from other sources of external noise. To ensure that the CX-A5000 and MX-A5000 are not affected by this distortion, they use balanced connections that are highly noise resistant—the same type generally used in pro audio equipment. Even the RCA unbalanced connection uses a ground sensing transmission method that achieves simple balanced transmission. In cases where each channel with the XLR is used selectively, the impact of noise flowing between the pre-amp and the chassis of the power amp is removed, minimizing sound quality deterioration due to the connection.
The CX-A5000 also allows balanced audio input connection to high grade source components such as CD players.
In Addition to 11.2 Channel Output, 5 Channel Bi-amping and Other Configurations are Possible
The CX-A5000 and MX-A5000 are designed to allow flexible system building. Complementing their 11 channel output that maximizes Cinema DSP HD3 performance and makes the most of the capabilities of the speakers, they also support bi-amping for tweeter and woofer driving with separate amps. Furthermore, they allow bi-amping of, for example, all five channels using the 11 internal channels. Extra amps can be used to power multiple zones in addition to the main room, letting you configure your system for music play in another room, such as a bedroom or kitchen. On the MX-A5000, you can switch all 11 channel input jacks back and forth between balanced and unbalanced for each channel, further increasing system flexibility.
Auto Power Standby
Using less power saves money and is friendly to the earth. The MX-A5000 has an Auto Power Standby function that will turn the power off after eight hours. It can be turned on and off via a rear panel switch and will be overridden by the trigger function.
